Information about the project:

My name is Kendra Jones, and I am a graduate student at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing.  I am working with the Institute for Patient-and Family-Centered Care (IPFCC) on a quality improvement project: Improving Care Experiences for Racial and Ethnic Minorities Through Patient and Family Advisory Councils. This project aims to strengthen healthcare organizations’ abilities to advance health equity through identifying and promoting strategies that help to recruit and retain diverse populations on Patient and Family Advisory Councils (PFAC). We will be creating a resource that details the importance of diversity and inclusivity in the organizational culture and highlights recruitment and retention strategies to effectively engage the perspectives of advisors from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds.

We are recruiting several PFACs to partner with us on this project.  PFAC participation will include providing written and verbal feedback on the resource three times from April 2017 to October 2017.  Written insights, comments, and suggestions will be collected through email and verbal comments will be solicited in meetings via phone conference, webinar, FaceTime, or Skype.  Conference meetings will require you to reserve a maximum of 15 minutes of time during your scheduled PFAC meeting to provide feedback. You will also be asked to complete a survey before and after participating in the project. 

If you participate on a PFAC and are interested in partnering with us on this project, please complete the following survey so that we may determine the right combination of PFACs to ensure that diverse perspectives are represented.

For any questions, please contact Kendra Jones BSN, RN at jone3132@umn.edu.
